Brusilov Offensive armored car OOB
Permalink   


A little while ago I made a posting on the axis history forum asking about the OOBs of the 1916 brusilov offensive, in the reply besides the divisions ect it listed the autopolemetaye platoons  which I believe are armored car platoons here are the platoons and what corps and army they were assigned to:

26th II/7th army

20th & 32nd XXXII/8th army

15th XXXIX/8th army

31st XVIII/11th army

19th VI/11th army

34th VII/11th army

18th & 2nd XXXIII 9th army

17th (under repair) 9th army

I hope this of some use. I also hope it is right.

Oops! I left out the 9th Auto Plt/ Guards army which shows up later

In reading the book "The Brusilov Offensive" by timouthy C Dowling it mentions on page 85 on 10 June "... the Russian XXXIX Corps by deploying armored vehicals once again, had managed to break the Austro-hungarian lines on the stochad river."
Thanks for the above info Ivan i have some errata for this book:
P71 the Commanding general of the II Cavalry corps was HIH Grand Duke Michael A. Romanov (The Tsar's younger brother)
P 99 it talks of the men of the Imperial guards being "over six feet tall" . The average US soldier in WW I was 5'7" and the average Russian soldier was shorter. I don't think there were really that many 6 foot tall plus men in russia. The book "The End of the Russian Imperial Army" has many of the men in Guards regiments coming from the Petrograd area at the time of the Feb/Mar 1917 revolution.
P 100 he has the I Guards Corps commanded by Crown prince Pavel Aleksandrovitch. he was a Grand Duke.
P5 a number of typos 76.2mm not 121.9mm, 107mm not 106mm, 77mm not 87.5mm
